More on Florado Helios Muybridge

Further to the earlier piece about the Changing Names of Eadweard Muybridge, in which I mentioned Florado; thanks to Ancestry's free access offer, I've found Florado H Muybridge as a nurseryman in the O'Brien Nursery in the 1934 Sacramento city directory, and a gardener in later directories.
In the 1940 directory, his entry reads 'h rear 914 27th'. Rear 914 27th is his address, but what does the 'h' mean ?

Our latest volume, Coldingham Monumental Inscriptions has been published.
